Complete revision of the definitive guide to the flora of the Rocky Mountain National Park region.
First published by the National Park Service in 1933, Plants of Rocky Mountain National Park, by botanist/author Rush Ashton Nelson, was immmediately acknowledged as a classic--the definitive guide to the flora of the Rocky Mountain National Park region. This complete revision maintains the acclaimed style of Nelson's original work while adding many new species, hundreds of beautiful color photographs, exquisite line drawings, detailed descriptions, and all-new identification keys. Authors Linda H. Beidleman, Richard G. Beidleman, and Beatrice E. Willard are field biologists with a century of combined experience studying the plant life of Rocky Mountain National Park and the southern Rockies. Together, they have produced an indispensable guidebook for everyone from the casual wildflower observer to the professional botanist.
